Commvault and NetApp Expand Data Protection and Recovery For Hybrid Cloud Environments

Commvault has announced the launch of NetApp Scale-out Data Protection (SDP) to offer expanded rapid recovery support for critical data across NetApp’s hybrid-enabled storage systems. NetApp SDP takes advantage of the NetApp portfolio and is powered by Commvault Complete Backup & Recovery software to provide snapshot management, backup, and disaster recovery functionality.

According to Commvault, businesses today are highly data-driven, so losing access to this critical asset due to an outage, or modern threat, such as ransomware, can be catastrophic. While cloud-based technologies have made data more available, losing a critical system still risks financial and reputational impact. Companies must have the ability to quickly and reliably recover valuable business data.

Through NetApp SDP, Commvault and NetApp are combining NetApp HCI, All-Flash-FAS and StorageGRID with Commvault software to deliver the complete package, with quick and effective deployment, easy scale and on-premises object storage to efficiently protect critical cloud applications. Utilizing Commvault’s vast support for array and cloud snapshots and a full set of application and VM APIs, Commvault and NetApp have simplified the protection of hybrid cloud environments by delivering extremely fast and reliable RPO/RTO while incorporating long-term retention in an integrated cloud tier.

“When downtime occurs, access and recoverability of critical data, specifically in a cloud environment, critically impacts an organization’s ability to maintain business operations and meet SLAs,” said Ranga Rajagopalan, vice president of product management, Commvault. “We’re proud to partner with NetApp’s entire storage portfolio to deliver a solution that meets today’s expectation for performance, simplicity, scale and cost, integrating both on-prem and public cloud deployments.”

Commvault and NetApp have been partners for more than 20 years, jointly supporting 1,200 customers with critical data protection through Commvault Complete Backup and Recovery integrated with NetApp’s range of storage solutions both on-premises and in the cloud. In utilizing this technology, customers can migrate, simplify and convert their critical data and workloads to their preferred cloud provider, maximizing their investment.
